Minutes:

The Following Emergency Motions to the Area Manager were tabled 

 

Emergency motion in the name of Councillor Seamas McGrattan

 

That this Area Committee calls on Dublin City Council to suspend the introduction of permit parking on Daneswell Road and to re-engage with residents on the Road.

 

ORDER:    Agreed

 

 

Emergency motion in the name of Councillor Nial Ring

 

That this committee rejects any plan to close or downgrade the recycling centre at Shamrock Cottages, North Strand, and that this centre should not be included in any plans which would involve a reduction of the services available there, or indeed which could result in the entire facility being closed. This committee further requests the Area Manager to give an unequivocal statement that the centre will not only remain open but that a review thereof will be immediately undertaken with a view to enhancing the centre and the excellent recycling facilities it offers to the area.

 

Order:  Agreed Report to Councillor

 

 

 

Item 1 

Motion in the names of Councillor Ray McAdam, Declan Meenagh, Christy Burke, Nial Ring, Janet Horner, Janice Boylan, Joe Costello, Colm O’Rourke, Cieran Perry, Eimer McCormack, Cat O’Driscoll, Darcy Lonergan, Seamas McGrattan

 

That this Central Area Committee recognises the Motion passed in Dáil Eireann on the 19th November 2019 and as such reaffirms that a Personal Assistance Service that supports disabled people to live independent lives should be legislated for as a right.

 

ORDER:         Agreed

 

Item 2

Motion in the name of Councillor Declan Meenagh

 

That this Central Area Committee calls on the Area Manager to ask for a report on how the Council co-ordinates utilities digging up roads in the Central Area, how the Council regulates communication between contractors and residents and how the Council enforces cases where communication is poor.  To use Leix Road as an example of a road where there have been 4 different sets of road works in the past 2 years and to see how this can be avoided.

 

ORDER:         Agreed.  Report to Councillor

 

Item 3

Motion in the name of Councillor Eimer McCormack

 

That this Central Area Committee requests that the Parish Hall and Corpus Christi Church be added to the Register of Protected Structures immediately in order to adequately protect and preserve it for future use.

 

ORDER:         Agreed

Item 4

Motion in the name of Councillors Nial Ring and Cieran Perry

 

That this Area Committee welcomes the news that Dublin City Council officials met with Shelbourne Football Club Board members recently, at which a proposal was submitted by the club to purchase Tolka Park from Dublin City Council and redevelop it into a multi-sport stadium. Furthermore, this committee fully supports the retention of Tolka Park as a sports stadium into the future and calls for the current zoning and use of the site to be protected.

In addition, this committee reiterates its support for the redevelopment of Dalymount and sees both projects as complementary in the provision of two state of the art sports stadia/facilities on the Northside of Dublin.
